Winner of the 2016 ANSTO Eureka Prize for Innovative Use of Technology for enabling colour to be used as a uniquely powerful diagnostic tool in medicine.
The first MEG system in the Southern Hemisphere, the world’s first child MEG system and the world’s first MEG brain imaging system for people with hearing devices – the KIT-MQ Brain Research Laboratory is a hub of innovation.
What does a doctor learn from someone’s skin colour, oxygen saturation and breathing? If a cricket bowler grips the ball in a certain way, what kind of delivery will he bowl?
An increase in the number of fatal shark attacks in recent years has seen renewed interest in technologies that deter sharks from interacting too closely with humans. Surfers are at the greatest risk of shark attack and by developing novel technologies to deter sharks Hart is hopeful his team can save lives.
A new study has found that the colour of neuronal cells found in the nose, can be used to diagnose for a rare genetic disorder called MELAS syndrome, which can result in stroke and dementia.
The Australian Centre for Ancient Numismatic Studies at Macquarie University uses X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry to study how silver is employed for the minting of archaic Athenian coins. The research project, “A spring of silver, a treasury in the earth: coinage and wealth in archaic Athens”, was funded by the Australian Research Council from 2012 to 2014, and was concluded at the conference “Mines, Metals and Money in Attica and the Ancient World” held in Athens, Greece on 20-22 April 2015.
Genes and proteins are not enough to explain the complexity of Biology. The cell adds complex sugar modifications onto the proteins and fats on its surface.
Dr Lee Spitler’s research develops methods to maximise the information extracted from telescope observations. This allows the charting of previously unknown aspects of the universe and provides a gateway to new and original research investigations.
Dr Simon Gross has developed a world-class ultrafast laser inscription facility for enabling research breakthroughs. Ultrafast laser inscription is the only fabrication process that natively supports integrated 2-dimensional optical circuits.
Professor David Raftos works with the Australian oyster industry to find solutions to the growing problems of disease and environmental stress.
